This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Could you someone please let me know about composite bean. I try to google but in vain. I am not sure if the answers i am finding are the one which actually are precise.
We are using Struts. Where the data is being saved to composite bean and then again converted to a specific actionform and attached to a request which is forwarded to another class [which is a facade i.e. spring] (yes, we are combining two frameworks...infact 3...3rd some if our own custom made.)
Kindly let me know if you are able to understand the flow. Thanks!
I believe a composite bean is an entity bean that spans multiple tables in the relational model.
Personally, I have no clue what the author of that paragraph is trying to communicate. At first it sounds like he's describing the flow of data from the database to the front end but then it says something about sending the request to a facade in Spring - which would now be going in the other direction. Hopefully the code makes more sense than the documentation!

Thanks Marc! no wonder the author was me. :-)
I will try to be better this time. We are Reengineering the front end of the application. As whole, the process starts with Struts who takes care of the look and feel of the application where as the Spring takes care of the bussiness logic and connection to the database [Oracle].
I hope this makes sense. :-) The above scenario was about a particular module.
Could anyone please give more details on composite bean? Thanks! [ August 03, 2007: Message edited by: Atul Sawant ]
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
